‘Buckwild,’ asteroid, mail, more


On MTV’s announcement to renew the West Virginia reality show “Buckwild,” which has become the No. 1 original cable series on Thursday nights for 12- to 34-year-olds:

• The show is no worse then any of the other reality TV shows that show West Virginia — Sunshine G.

• Love it and will continue to watch — Christy W.

• I watched it expecting it to be completely unrealistic, but honestly it isn’t. It’s how a lot of kids that age act, in West Virginia and all over — Dana S.

• Watch “The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia” sometime ... If you haven’t ... — Phillip B.

• Yeah, it’s nowhere near as bad as some people made it out to be. While it doesn’t do anything to “promote” our state, it also doesn’t do anything to single us out or hurt our image either. It’s actually entertaining (in a silly way) — Randy G.

• We have more to worry about than a reality TV show. People and media need to get their priorities in order — Brian L.

• They are all just actors — Shane B.

• Why are people taking offense to the program? Other than some vulgar language the show only shows some very creative minds at work — young men and women having fun. Get real, at least they’re not out here creating havoc like in Aurora, Colo., Newtown, Conn., or Phoenix, Ariz. Give them some credit where it’s due — Danny H.

• Why would any parent allow a 12-year-old to even watch MTV? — Marina C.

On Tazewell County’s ATV trail project receiving a funding boost:

• Sounds good but what about walking/hiking trails? — Chrissy C.

On a story about the U.S. Postal Service cutting Saturday delivery:

• The way to save the USPS is not by cutting out one day of delivery. The answer is to modernize and streamline your operation and operate in the most cost effective way possible ... — Duane C.

• Time to turn the postal system over to UPS. We know they are much more capable of running a mail system than our government — Jim H.
